New England Low Vision and Blindness' newest Low Vision Technology Showroom in Shelton, CTIn response to recent growth and a demand for more locations, Scott Krug, President and Owner of New England Low Vision and Blindness (NELV&B), announces the opening of a new low vision showroom in Shelton, Connecticut. This location will add more flexibility and convenience for people with vision impairments to get assessments, hands-on experience and training with low vision and blindness devices from every major supplier of vision assistive technology.

New England Low Vision and Blindness is a full-service technology and training company that provides low vision and blindness products and training services to people who are blind and visually impaired and to the professionals who serve them throughout the six states of New England.

The new space, consisting of 1256 square feet in the Huntington Point building, will be multifunctional with a low vision technology showroom where people can see and learn about the latest low vision and blindness adaptive technology from more than 15 suppliers. It will also have areas designated for trainings and in-service meetings to help low vision professionals become more familiar with the latest in low vision technology and a new low vision clinic with an optometrist specializing in vision rehabilitation.

“We are excited to open our new low vision showroom in Shelton, Connecticut,” says Krug. “This location is a one-stop shop where people with vision impairments and the professionals who serve them can get hands-on with the latest technology and a low vision eye exam from Dr. Kara Gagnon, our National Director of Low Vision Optometry and Rehabilitation Services to help maximize their remaining vision and regain their independence.”

This expansion is part of a six-month growth trend by New England Low Vision and Blindness that has included the acquisition of Vision Dynamics (making NELV&B New England’s largest provider of low vision and blindness aids and training services), obtaining partnerships with Freedom Scientific and Sitecues and hiring additional employees.
